One of the saddest days was when I heard that Bill Watterson was retiring.
A little bit of my soul died with the end of Calvin and Hobbes.
But guess what?! There’s a new book coming out! Clearly, what with all of my use of exclamation points, I’M EXCITED!
It releases in about a month and already, it’s a best-seller on Amazon. Bill can move a product! It’s not a brand new series of comics, but it’s a companion book to an exhibit about Calvin and Hobbes, and Bill Watterson as an artist. It’s got original art, Watterson’s commentary, work from cartoons and cartoonist that were influential to him (Peanuts, Pogo, Pat Oliphant, etc), and an interview between Watterson and the exhibition’s curator.
Yep. Bought mine.
